Defensive linemen are at a premium in the 2019 class

Defensive linemen are a big focus in Mel Kiper's and Todd McShay's big boards for the 2019 NFL draft. Nick Bosa, the projected No. 1 pick overall, already has withdrawn from school to focus on preparing for the draft. Houston's Ed Oliver, the No. 2 projection on the big boards, declared for the draft before the season started.

Clemson's Clelin Ferrell and Michigan's Rashan Gary also find their way into the top 10, while seven other defensive linemen are named in the top 20 of the rankings. That's a large number of linemen in one draft, and it means there will be some big holes to fill along the defensive line for quite a few teams.

Here is a look at the top uncommitted defensive linemen and where they might end up committing when they make their decision.
